Get on Up: A James Brown Celebration, Hollywood Bowl, August 13

 

Date: August 13, 2014James-Brown

Time: 8:00 pm

The late Godfather of Soul’s legacy looms large, and it’s payback time. J.B. would have approved of music director Christian McBride’s vision of things when he selected singers Aloe Blacc, D’Angelo, Bettye LaVette and Angelique Kidjo to strut their stuff in tribute to the Hardest Working Man in Show Business. And –– uhhh! –– laying down the funk is the James Brown Alumni Band, featuring original JB Horns men Pee Wee Ellis and Fred Wesley, and massively influential (and massively sampled) drummer Clyde Stubblefield, whose ultra-ultra-funky beats you’ve shaken a tailfeather to on classic JB tracks including “Cold Sweat,” “I Got the Feelin’?” and “Say It Loud — I’m Black and I’m Proud.” Valuable JB’s players Jab’o Starks, Danny Ray, Mousey Thompson and others also join the reunion. Sweaty stuff! Bring a hanky.
